What are the precautions for titanium alloy?
Titanium has a tendency to fill grinding wheel, so it is difficult to wear titanium belt. Before grinding, the higher temperature rise on the interface between metal and grinding wheel makes the grinding surface produce higher residual stress, and the surface finish is not ideal.
These difficulties can be largely resolved by:
(1) Choose the right grinding wheel, such as silicon carbide grinding wheel, sand particle size is medium (60-80), the hardness is medium (J~M), the surface velocity is 700~1200m/min. Oxidized (alumina powder or corundum) grinding wheels should be used at lower speeds, e.g. 550~600min. Medium granularity is also required.
(2) Use lower grinding wheel speed and feed speed; Due to the low speed of grinding wheel, less spark is produced.
(3) with buffer or cutting liquid cooling agent cooling, with ceramic bond and chlorinated or chlorinated cutting oil, you can obtain good results. No matter what type of cooling, with ceramic bond and chlorinated or chlorinated cutting oil, you can obtain good results. No matter what type of cooling is used, it should be well filtered to eliminate "fishtail" stains caused by titanium particle recycling.
(4) Titanium sparks may catch fire in oil mist, but oil immersion can reduce this risk. Rustproof nitrite can completely eliminate fire hazard according to water bath.
However, even optimal grinding conditions can reduce the fatigue performance of the workpiece.
